Shahi Palace is one out of four hotels from four brothers. On Agoda I saw a room I wanted to book. Asking whether it was possible to book this room directly with the hotel for the same price I was told the photo was from another hotel and a similar room at Shahi Palace was more expensive, but since I already saw this room online I could book it for the same price as listed on Agoda. Very correct service!
Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly people whom were constantly available for us during our stay and always tried to make us feel at home!
They offer a free guide to see the havelis, but he will also take you to his textileshop. Fixed prices and fair ones for tourists too. If you are not interested in buying just tell him! Otherwise, when looking for something particular he'll also be able to take you to some shops so you can compare.
The entrance to the fort is a 15min walk, the havelis are 5min away.
The hotel also has a nice rooftop restaurant with good food, an AC-room (which is very convenient during the hot season) and a great view of the fort.
The staff in the restaurant doesn't always understand what you say in english but they'll make up for that with a big smile and their friendliness, while someone else who speaks good english is always around.
